Pros: "Crew was very clear and friendly"
Cons: "Changing outlets under seats didn't always work"

Cons: "the fact that they rushed everyone only to have you wait in the ramp"

Cons: "After following out-of-date information to the furthest reaches of a sprawling and signage-deficient airport, I learned my departure gate was back where I’d come from. Having lost half an hour to my detour, I arrived panting and sweaty at the correct gate 12 minutes prior to departure - cutting it close, but before gate closing time. Or so American’s procedures say. The gate was deserted; they’d closed early."

Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."

Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."

Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."

Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."

Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"

Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."

Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."

Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."

Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"

Cons: "Lack of communication from the crew on the delay."

Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats. The fact that in flight service BARELY made it to the back of the plane before we landed."

Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."

Pros: "Plane was brand new. Nice to flight in a plane like this"
Cons: "Unexpected changes in the boarding gate, not clearly notified"

Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"

Pros: "Actually coming home was great. Thank you"
Cons: "Going to Cancun. From Boise sucked. Are flight from Boise sucked we we're 4 to 5 hours late due to the gas contamination in Boise and we weren't informed until a hour + after from the time our flight was suppose to go out. We weren't very happy. They new the night prior, so we could have came to the airport 3 hours later and been just fine. Which also made us miss the connecting flight"
